Our Theory of Change is guided by efforts to invert the vicious cycle of exclusion into virtuous circle of inclusion. The vicious cycle of exclusion starts with negative perception of the minority as inferior; fuelling prejudice against ten which in turn leads to discrimination and exclusion and in the process lowering the living standards of the minority.
The effect of this negative perception creates a self-fulfilling prophecy of inferiority of the minority because as their standards of living fall below that of the majority, the basis for prejudice, discrimination and exclusion increasingly gain widespread credence in the society.
KFSE hopes to work with excluded communities to reverse this vicious cycle of exclusion so that it can become a virtuous cycle of inclusion. This is premised on injecting a socially appealing intervention that reverses the negative perception into a positive one, and indeed one that has benefit to the entire society.
